The FinEx Emerging Markets ex Chindia UCITS ETF (FXEM RM) tracks the Solactive GBS Emerging Markets ex Chindia and ME Large Cap 15% CC USD Index using direct, physical replication.

The index consists of large-cap companies from 15 of the largest emerging market countries, excluding China, India, and countries in the Middle East.

Constituents are weighted by float-adjusted market capitalization while capping the weight of any single country at 15%.

Notable positions included Taiwan Semiconductor (8.4%), Samsung Electronics (6.0%), Gazprom (2.9%), Vale (2.6%), and Sberbank Russia (2.3%).

The ETF comes with an expense ratio of 0.70%. Income is accumulated within the portfolio.
